  1. Cinnamon Brown Sugar Buttercream
    •1 stick unsalted butter, softened
    •1/4 cup shortening
    •1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
    •1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    •3 cups powdered sugar (varies based on temperature/humidity)
    •3 tablespoons half and half (varies based on temperature/humidity)

    In a large mixer bowl, combine the butter and shortening. Whip together with the whisk attachment until light and fluffy. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and whisk until well combined.

    Gradually add the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time. Alternately add the half and half, whipping the icing on medium-high speed after each addition, until the desired consistency is reached.
